On Tuesday 20 October, Kevan led an Adjournment Debate in Parliament about the regulation of cosmetic surgery. Kevan raised the case of his constituent Dawn Knight who has been left unable to close her eyes following a botched cosmetic procedure.
As the law currently stands, any qualified doctor, not just surgeons, can carry out cosmetic surgery without any further training or qualifications.
Kevan said: ‘My constituent’s case is one of many that have highlighted the need for regulation. The legislation is there and we should press forward as a matter of urgency because if we do not more people will suffer. If there is one thing that my constituent, Mrs Knight, wants, it is that other people should avoid the awful experiences that she has gone through because of the negligence and greed for profit of both The Hospital Group and Dr Paganelli.’
